Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization
, the 2008 remake of 1994's Sid Meier's Colonization
was met with some hostility over the concept
at the outset. Trevor Owens
and Rebbeca Mir
, contributors to Play the Past
, have been making a series of blog posts about the inherently problematic nature of the game. It started with "Sid Meier's Colonization: Is it offensive enough?"
, next was "if (!isNative()[returnfalse;]: De-People-ing Native Peopls in Sid Meier's Colonization?"
, then "Guns, Germs and Horses: Cultural Exchange in Sid Meier's Colonization"
and, the latest, "Playing at Slavery: Modding Colonization for Authenticity"
Meanwhile, if you want to experience the original Colonization
is an open-source clone.
